The carne asada taco is phenomenal!!
This is my second time here - and both times I have ate at Johnny Sanchez and will continue to come ! Food is very delicious 😋
Our experience here was great! The food was delicious.
Had the carne asada tacos. Would have like a little more char on the meat but had good flavor. Pics was fresh and complimented the taco well. The street corn was awesome. Nice char and tasted well with the Mexican cheese. Chicken tortilla soup was totally gone. Excellent soup with crispy strip of corn tortilla. My 11 yr old son had the chicken quesadilla. Didn’t hear a peep from him till he was done. He said it was Great. I would totally recommend this place to anyone looking for great food and service.
Food was amazing and the service was great! Clean and friendly environment and would def go back again!
Food was great but the setting not so much.
Server not the best and staff lacked enthusiasm.
But the food was wonderful.
Will probably call in orders and bring them home next time.
Loved it, Duck Enchiladas were excellent and the queso dip delicious,.
Drink sizes are pretty small relative to pricing. Food was really good. Service was great.
Love the taco Tuesday specials. Our waiter was great. I love the fried plantains.
You definitely need to try the ceviche/ meatball tacos (Aaron Sanchez’s Grandma’s recipe). The server was absolutely amazing... with his recommendations/ gave us a great experience overall.
Food was incredible. Service was amazing! Can’t wait to go back?
Food, service was great but extremely loud!
I drove down from Lafayette for my birthday to go here I love Aarón Sánchez and wanted to try his place. but left disappointed. The salsa was okay. The Brussel sprouts were under seasoned, actually everything needed seasoning so for me I wouldn’t come back. The drinks were good I had the blueberry lavender margarita that was nice. Te carné asada Taco was just Bland. I left very disappointed.
This was my first visit to Johnny Sanchez and I would definitely recommend it to anyone! The margaritas were spectacular, and the food was splendid... very upscale and delicious! The portions were perfect... if you wanted a small bite, that's what you got - if you wanted a meal, you definitely got more than enough! Can't wait to go back!!!!
The food was amazing. Staff is nice.
Our waiter did not charge us for guacamole and nachos because of a long wait.
Everything we ate was great! Shrimp, Oyster, and Cauliflower tacos were all excellent. Get the Queso Fundido - it's cheesy deliciousness. Loved the guacamole. The skirt steak is the ultimate melt in your mouth experience. A little snafu with salt/no salt on the margaritas but not a deal breaker. The Black and Gold Margarita is really tasty!
Service was unbelievable and the food was fantastic.
We had a group of 13 Sweet Adelines women who ate at Johnny Sanchez recently. The service was terrible with one of our ladies receiving her meal after everyone was finished. The manager comped the meal, but that spoiled it for her and all of us. Also we asked for the bill to be split within smaller groups and we were told that that wasn’t possible. Made paying the bill a nightmare!!
Food was good a little pricey for what was on a limited menu
Server Morgan was on point with recommendations and explanations. Service was fast and courteous. Food was great with Duck Enchilada being an instant must have.
The food was delicious, as always. The service was good, too. Such a fun venue with lots of energy and good music.. It’s an added bonus that it’s across the street from Vintage Rock Club:)
Only bummer was he was out of his cookbook!! Which I was super excited to get!!
Saints game day. Very noisy because of the crowd.
The salsa was heavenly! Over the assortment of chips. The fish was succulent and tender.
The only items that I didn’t love was the cake (too dry) and the rice. The street corn was so so good.
Great street tacos and the Queso fundido is awesome!
Very tasty food and good service . I enjoyed the meatball and fish tacos . And the tortilla soup was excellent !
Aaron Sanchez has is an amazing Chef and this place lives up to his expectations by far. The worst part of our experience was that Aaron himself wasn’t there :,( thanks for a great time and great food!
Absolutely delicious, especially street corn. It was amazing.
Great food and lovely ambiance - the meatball taco was fabulous.
I gave it 2 stars because they overcharged us for a meal and because one person in our party paid they thought the bill was correct. But it wasn’t. Food is tasty.
It was great!!! The only thing that would have made it better was meeting Aron’ Sanchez himself... FISH TACOS.... BEST THING ON THE TACO MENU, followed by the Yellowtail Ceviche
Great food and beautiful restaurant. Lizzie took care of us and did a great job! This was our first time and we will definitely be back.
Great restaurant. Food and drinks were delicious.
Great service and great food! Was there for a birthday and everything went fabulous.
This was my first visit to NOLA and as a huge fan of master chef I wanted to make a point of visiting Aaron Sanchez’s restaurant
Johnny Sanchez was worth the visit and worth every penny plus we went on a Wednesday- $2.00 margaritas night
Now that sure helps
The food was great, simple menu and a very open style restaurant
The art work is fabulous and absolutely shows Aaron’s roots
Can’t wait for my next visit
Love love love their happy hour! A bunch of us met there for Happy Hour/pre-concert drinks at the Smoothie King Center. It was the perfect location to be able to park easily and walk to the Arena. We shared pitchers of margaritas and other cocktails along with many $2 tacos, corn, brussels sprouts, and salads. Everything was easy and perfect even with the large pre-concert crowds. The place was full but we were able to hear each other in our party of 6. The people watching was fun and the staff was calm and cool the whole time. I'll be back for Happy Hour soon!
This is our absolute go to restaurant for dinner and a concert. We are never disappointed and this time was no exception. From Jean being so sweet as she seated us to Rohan making sure that our every need was being met our experience was perfect. Food here is awesome and I always enjoy it. My only wish is that they were closer to where we live so we could go more often.
Food was incredible. Service too. So happy to finally try this. Highly recommend 😘
Johnny Sanchez was a great, authentic Mexican restaurant. It was the opposite of what many cheap knock-offs do, smother everything with cheese, etc. The food was fresh and creative. The fajitas were terrific and the margarita was a perfect compliment to them. The tacos were very good and I like how they were a la carte, so you could mix it up and have a variety. The decor was also a nice mix of Mexican art and modern fixtures. Great place.
